The shortlists have been announced for the BREEAM Awards 2015, the winners of which will be announced at a gala dinner at the London Marriot Hotel in Grosvenor Square on March 3 2015.
Drawn from the highest scoring buildings for sustainability in 2014, the shortlists include entries from the UK and countries across Europe – including the Czech Republic, France, Norway, Romania and Sweden – which are considered to be some of the most innovatively sustainable buildings in the world.
Gavin Dunn, director of BREEAM, said:
“This year’s shortlists represent an extraordinary variety of inspirational buildings that are setting the standards for sustainability in the design, construction, refurbishment and management of our built environment.
“Ranging from city towers to factories, shops, schools, hospitals, homes and much besides, they demonstrate that the many benefits of sustainability can be gained from virtually any type of building.”
The shortlisted buildings are grouped into several categories: Office, Retail, Industrial, Healthcare, Education, Residential, and Mixed-use and other. There are also awards for New Construction in all categories, and for Refurbishment and Fit-Out and In-Use in the Office and Retail categories.

There are also BREEAM Awards for the most successful BREEAM assessors and assessor organisation, and for those introducing BREEAM into countries where it has not previously operated.
The winners will be selected by an independent judging panel of industry figures chaired by Alan Yates of BREEAM, including architect Bill Gething, Claudine Blamey of The Crown Estate, Alan Cole of the Home Office, Mike Smith of BSRIA, Louise Sunderland of the UK Green Building Council and Thomas Lane of Ecobuild and Building Magazine.
